Indian guitar master Prasanna returns to one his favorite New York venues, the Rubin Museum, to perform the music of his good friend, the celebrated Oscar-winning Indian film composer A.R. Rahman. A film composer himself, Prasanna has scored the music for the Oscar-winning documentary Smile Pinki and other feature films.

Rahman for many of his renowned film soundtracks, including Jeans, Lagaan, Swades, Highway, Million Dollar Arm, and Hundred Foot Journey.
